Bihar is an agriculture state with large livestock population as a major means of subsistence to larger section of society. Despite large animal's resource in the state the overall output from livestock sector is low. The factors that significantly contributes to this are large no of animals of poor germplasm, ineffective implementation of breeding policies, scarcity of feed and forage, poor adoption of recent managemental practices, meagre veterinary healthcare services etc. Improvement made in the animal husbandry and allied sectors has direct impact on the financial wellbeing of weaker sections of the society. This sector contributes immensely towards poverty alleviation and addressing the issue of malnutrition. To transform the livestock and fisheries sector as a whole, establishment of Animal Sciences University was envisaged that could act as a catalyzing force by joining the dots towards making it an intensive, profitable, sustainable, vibrant and dynamic enterprise. Thus, to provide an enabling platform to fish farmers, livestock owners, scientists, academicians, animal health professional and entrepreneurs to converge and to bring synergy among the stakeholders, a formal proposal for establishment of Bihar Animal Sciences University (BASU) was made in "Agricultural Roadmap 2012-2017" and as an accomplishment towards implementation of Agriculture roadmap 2012. Bihar Animal Sciences University (BASU) has been established with its headquarters at Patna through an act of Bihar State, BASU Act No. 15 of 2016.
